Include 84 looks, Valentino Pre-Fall 2016 collection is one of the season’s most prodigious. Thematically, it spanned worlds. New York section was colorful and smothered with stars, fringe, tie-dye, and the Chrysler Building kitschily picked out in metallic sequins. The Japanese section was subtler, with an emphasis on neutral hues and humble wabi-sabi embroideries of cherry blossoms, clouds, and flying birds on outerwear featuring traditional quilted linings. Bamboo prints turned up on simple long-sleeved dresses, pajama sets, and button-down and pleated skirt combos. Of course, there was a lot of cross-pollination.
